I really hope that Ray is Kat’s mystery lover. Given Kim’s silly noises, her ridiculous hair, her OTT mannerisms, surely it is inconceivable that Ray would go for this woman. Presumably, she is meant to be one of the show’s ‘comic’ characters but, in fact, the comedy is better when it doesn’t verge on slapstick – Tamwar’s understated asides, Shirley’s expressions, Fat Boy.
On Thursday, Kat receives a key to a flat from her secret lover – which, alas, makes it less likely to be Ray. On the wages which Kat pays him, he could ill afford to have a key duplicated, let along a keyhole to a spare apartment (Derek, however, could). With Alfie continuing to discuss football tactics, Kat disappears to the flat to meet the mystery man.
My biggest concern is how the couple even manage to kiss, given the amount of lip gloss Kat is now wearing. I’ll bet their mouths don’t so much meet as ski down each other. Her upper lip is now threatening to engulf her nostrils, and the lower is slaloming towards her chest. When will all be revealed? Christmas Day, I reckon. And here’s the latest on Bedding Watch at the Vic: still no change of sheets, pillows and duvet, I am sad to report. There was clearly a job lot of this burgundy bedding, as Kat was wearing some of it as a top this week.
The Is Michael Capable of Being a Father? saga drags on and will probably do so until the child reaches 18. On Monday, Janine is upset when Michael fails to turn up for Scarlett’s medical appointment and, on Tuesday, she still can’t shake off the feeling that Michael is only after her money. Duh! Could it be the papers he asks her to sign, making him a signatory to the business accounts? There might be a clue there.
